By Sharon Robb
STUART, November 13, 2021—The FHSAA Class 3A Swimming and Diving Championships Saturday at Sailfish Splash Waterpark and Aquatics Center turned out to be a roller coaster for several swimmers.

St. Thomas Aquinas girls and boys teams finished among the top eight in the field. The Raider girls, buoyed by a runner-up finish by diver Kaitlyn Ross and third place finish in the 400-yard freestyle relay, finished sixth with 106 points.
